Of the following list of eastern forms somo may no doubt
be discovered in Marri/ and even further west, in Afghani-
stan: 
T^^c\3^mpauciftorum.                 Cotoneaster wicrophylla.
        foliolosim.                   Eubus rosafolius.

Juniperus recurva.
Pyrus v&riolosa.

itteda ovalifolia and Rhododendron arboreum; and of oaks,, of
which five species occur in the adjacent provinces, namely,
Quercus Ilex, annulata, dilatata, incana, and semecarpifolia.
Also the appearance of Salvinia natans, of Euryale ferox, if
really wild, and Nelumbium spedosum, must be considered as
